Working with Sammamish High School Frontiers Class with Neshyba
We’re excited to collaborate with Sammamish Frontiers Class about challenging fieldwork. We’ll be interacting via video during our Antarctic trip to discuss the challenges of doing science in remote areas. And we look forward to visiting the classroom after we return to talk about communicating science to the wider community.
Polar Science Weekend at the Pacific Science Center
Mar 3-5, 2017
Anders Torstensson and Hannah Dawson were part of the "Polar Science Weekend 2017” at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. Together with the Deming Lab Group (UW), we demonstrated how life can evolve in extremely cold environments, such as sea-ice brines.
NJ elementary school children learn about Antarctica from polar scientists.
While at Princeton University, Jodi Young worked with colleagues to develop an outreach program that connected NJ school children with scientists at Palmer Station, Antarctica. Campaign incorporated video conferencing between elementary school children and active polar scientists at Palmer Station. In addition, one of our scientists visited the school, gave a presentation and answered questions about Antarctica. Our outreach program was reported in the local news and on the Princeton Public Schools website.
